Hello and welcome to my social page! I go by several aliases. For here, it is it Spikybum Jolteon but I do still go by my original name, Eclipsis. I have been with DeviantArt since July, 2004.

I am a graduate of a community college with an Associate’s in Computer Programming. I am currently taking classes towards a Bachelor’s in Business Administration: Computer Management. My graduation date will hopefully be by the end of Fall, 2015.

I develop the Minecraft modification, PokemonMD: Disciples of Corruption, which adds various hostile creatures themed after Pokemon usually combined with another theme from another game, movie, book, ect. I justify working on the mod as something to put on a resume/portfolio.

My personal idol is Markus Persson, or Notch, the developer of Minecraft. I appreciate his personal history and efforts it took for him to arrive at creating the game. Historic idols include General Robert E. Lee, Theodore Roosevelt, and Albert Einstein. I also learn much from my best friend, MythTrainerInfinity.

As an artist, my primary media are graphite and colored pencils. I also have skill with vector and text based pictures.

So until next time, this is Spikybum Jolteon,

Summer classes are finally winding down and I can see an end in sight. This semester was pretty tough and I feel sick thinking that the 16-week Fall classes are in less than a month.

What little free time I find I almost always devote to either play or modding for Minecraft. The X-alamon Alpha 1.0 update for my modification, PokémonMD: Disciples of Corruption, has an overly optimistic release date of December, 2014. The update is set to be one of the three largest updates of the mod, the other two being Beta 1.0 and simple the released 1.0 update 

The X-alamon update introduces items, block, and utility (furnace-like) blocks for the first time. There is also a super secret addition that may or may not wind up in the update. I do not want to get people's hopes up so I keep this special addition a secret. This Alpha 1.0 update in a sense is what the first true release to the public version should have been like.

Progress so far has added four new mobs to my 1.7.2 version, Zergling Nincada, Raptor Zergling Nincada, Baneling Nincada, and Proxy Pylon Carbink. However, I still have to re-add 20 of 22 mobs from the older 1.6.4 version (Alpha 0.4) (only Zombie Flareon and Zealot Pawniard are currently added). 

The X-alamon update has at least 14-24 new mobs scheduled for it. Four of those mobs are set to be very difficult to program and any or all of them might be abandoned. One could be the mod's first Minor Boss; a mob that has its own health bar up on display like the Ender Dragon or the Wither. It really depends on how much time or difficulty I find once I start on these four mobs.

I will try and make the items I add actually useful, rather than just simple ingredient items. But we will see. Like the mobs, many of the items will reference other video games. 

Until next time, this is Spikybum Jolteon,

Are all those minecraft models in a mod?
FuzzyAcornIndustries Featured By Owner May 12, 2014  Professional Interface Designer
Hehe, thanks. ^^ Yes, many of the models are in my mod, PkmnMD: Disciples of Corruption. You can see which ones are currently added along with some information and mod download here:

It is still for 1.6.4. I did not update to 1.7 because Minecraft Forge was a mess for me to try and work out. I am waiting for a more stable version of their 1.7.2 to be finalized.

The currently released mod version, Alpha 0.3 has 14 mob. Alpha 0.4, which I am getting fairly close to completing, will add 8 more mobs. Most I have not posted screenshots of because of how uninteresting or weird they look in Techne. But they are: Armored Luxray, Armored Shinx, Clay Commander Liepard, Doomstone Glaceon, Swordie Mienshao, Verktora Mightyena, Voorst Mightyena, and Zealot Pawniard.

I still need to make a small change to the Mienshao's tail and sound mix its cries (I do the sounds too).  Afterwards, I just need to make any balance issue checks or any other bugs. The only bug I have found but can't figure out how to solve is a transparency issue with Doomstone Glaceon. It's ice block is only transparent part of the time.

As for the mob models you commented on, Desolate Volcarona has not been deployed. Probably for a future update. The Demon Lord Ninetales model has been retired. It needs to be rebuilt to a new "standard" my models follow to make the animations smooth. I also have concerns of computer performance issues if I make it too complicated. But it will be a minor or major boss tier mob (haven't decided yet) and few should be on the battlefield at one time.

The other mobs coded but not deployed are Titanium Phantump and Ifrit Houndoom. They are scheduled for a special themed Alpha 1.0 update, when the mod is updated to 1.7.2.
